The Lolita lifestyle

Hello everyone :3
I´ve mentioned the Lolita lifestyle before but I never really explained what that is. So I will do it now ^0^

Actually it´s a bit hard to describe what the Lolita lifestyle is. In my opinion it is mostly that you try to put a little of this feeling the fashion gives you into your everyday life.  A classic Lolita ,for example, maybe would like do to activities ladies of former times did. Whereas a sweet Lolita would maybe like to do activities she also did as a child.
You do not have to be a everyday Lolita to live the lifestyle. The lifestyle actually helps you to put some Lolita feeling in everyday even if you are not able to wear it everyday.

Sports that fit the Lolita lifestyle

Please note that any kind of sport will make you sweat. I recommend to buy training clothes that go with the Lolita esthetics or to wear a dress that you do not wear so often anymore. The clothes you wear for sports should also be washable.
  • Ballroom dancing
  • Ballet
  • Ice skating
  • Roller skating
  • Badminton
  • Taking a walk in the local park
  • Hoola hooping
  • Sailing (especially if you are into sailor Lolita^^)
  • Horseback riding
  • Riding bike

More things a lifestyle Lolita could enjoy

  • Listen to classic musik
  • writing diary
  • holding a monthly "princess day". A princess day is a day on whitch you spoil yourself. I´m planing to write an own post for this.
  • going to flee markets
  • shopping at antique stores
  • studying ettiquette
  • collecting dolls
  • taking a long bath

A last thing I wanted to state is that you do not have to be a lifestyle Lolita to be a "real" Lolita. It´s totally your own decision what you do in your life. Moreover you do not have to like all things on this list to be a lifestyle Lolita. :)

So I hope I gave you an idea of the Lolita lifestyle and if something comes to your mind that could be added to this list I would be happy to do so ~

See you soon,
Yaya ~
